The Knuckles controllers are like the wireless controller from HTC Vive and it wraps around your hands with the straps. The controller than now will be in your hands and there are lots of capacitive sensors in the controller which tracks the fingers movement. But the twist is that it only tracks if your fingers are straight,  in between or tightly curved. This will track that if you want to grab onto something in the game or want to drop it.

The Knuckles controllers are just a prototype as you can see in the video below and even if you have lots of money in your bank, you can’t get it. Valve is providing the prototype to some of the best developers so they can understand and know how they can utilize this thing in their next game or program.
